It seems like the folks from Digital Lode are probably as big of a fan of Metal Gear Solid as I am. In fact, I would even say that all the hours of playing those games gave me a headstart when playing Espire that I was more surprised when I tried to do something and it DIDN’T work, such as knocking on a wall to draw an enemy solider off of his patrol route so that I could subdue him. In Espire you are also not playing as the clone of a great soldier from a bygone era, but rather you control an android that is inside of a building that has been taken over by terrorists and your job is to infiltrate the building via this android to stop the enemy. Even if you die, there is continuity as you will take control of a different android.
